    Nope, in here you're surrounded by fellow gamers who think Mearls is more than just overrated, but actually rather terrible.

    His name on a product turns me away from the product.
    To be perfectly honest, this is the reason why I haven't even considered buying anything for 5E beyond looking through the books in a store and deciding it wasn't for me.

    To be fair to Mearls.... the logo "D&D" emblazoned on the cover did more to turn me away than his name.

    But now that I know his hand was on the wheel? Just more reason to steer clear of 5e if I can.






    And to be clear; while I might not like Mearls when he's given free reign... he's no Skip Williams by any stretch of the imagination. That man should not be allowed near rules or rulings.

    I like 5e quite a bit. And Volo's guide has got a bunch of critters in it that I will use in my games, so I'm happy.

    I found Iron Heroes for example had a fantastic concept... But it needed additional development time probably.

    Mearls is a decent concept man... and even innovative. But he needs a firm hand reigning him in and trimming the excesses.

    I don't care what anybody else says, The Complete Book Of Elves was the absolute pinnacle of 2E D&D.

    Not a goddamn thing wrong with that book.

    I had a player back in the 2e days who had a Bladesinger PC. Ridiculous AC, though I felt the overall fragility (very low HP) counter balanced it.

    Anyway, we had a combat versus a bunch of bugbears, and he was so in shock when one of them actually hit him that he wasted his next turn disbelieving them.

    I have to admit, if you ran a campaign where all PCs were elves, it worked just fine because the DM can adjust everything accordingly. The problem came from overpowered elf characters in a mixed party.

    I once run a campaign of nothing but elves and we used the book.
